-- World Back to Work, North America's leading COVID mitigation company serving business enterprises, college campuses, festivals, and live events, today announced the launch of a new proctored testing service which brings clients into compliance with new rules established by the federal mandate for at-home testing.
"The Biden mandate requires testing done at home to be monitored by a technician, to ensure the test is taken properly and to provide accountability,"
said World Back to Work co-founder and chairman David Shor
. "We've worked with organizations of all sizes to look at what they need in order to successfully comply with the mandate, because their success is crucial to the success of our shared fight to end this pandemic. And we know our approach works, because we used it to protect the health of more than 10,000 kids at summer camps last year."
Under the Biden mandate (https://www.osha.gov/
, organizations with 100 employees or more must require weekly tests for employees who are not fully vaccinated. Employees may use over-the-counter (OTC) at-home tests but those tests may not be both self-administered and self-read unless observed by the employer or an authorized telehealth proctor. World Back to Work's new proctored testing service allows businesses to satisfy that requirement and remain in compliance, without having to devote their own staff hours to monitoring coworker testing.
World Back to Work's approach to at-home proctored testing offers comprehensive services including the ability for employees to schedule appointments at their convenience via a dedicated website; multilingual technicians;
tracking software to satisfy mandate compliance; 24/7 technical support; and round-the-clock appointment slots that satisfy the different shifts and time zones of any client. The service also includes shipping of tests directly to employees' homes, including antigen tests and saliva collection tubes used to run PCR tests in case of positive antigen test results. All shipping, packaging, and lab costs are managed at no cost to the employee.
"The whole world is suffering from a shortage of tests," continued Shor. "World Back to Work is uniquely able to satisfy the testing needs of organizations of all sizes. We have enough tests on hand, and we have a strong supply chain that will keep tests available for our clients to get us through this pandemic."
World Back to Work's proctored testing solution is now available for existing and new clients; interested organizations can schedule a demonstration at www.worldbacktowork.com
